OTD November 15 - One Night in the Tropics
18 / 50
Universal Pictures

1940: The comedy film "One Night in the Tropics" is released. It was the first movie for the comedy team of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. The team play minor roles but steal the picture with five classic routines, including an abbreviated version of "Who's On First?" Their work would earn them a two-picture deal with Universal, and their next film, "Buck Privates," would make them bona fide movie stars.
